Movie Info

The original Disney feature film, That Darn Cat, was a feel-good hit in 1965, thanks largely to stars such as Hayley Mills, Roddy McDowall, and William Demarest. This 1996 remake also closely follows the novel Undercover Cat by Mildred Gordon and Gordon Gordon and features Christina Ricci in the Hayley Mills role. In a small Massachusetts town, two bumbling criminals mistakenly kidnap a maid, thinking her to be the wife of a prominent businessman. D.C., short for Darn Cat, is an alley cat who,

The script trips all over itself to be hip and flip before it takes a desperate dip into utter conventionality: dull car chases, explosions, inept slapstick.

Audience Reviews for That Darn Cat

Awful family film that has no point whatsoever, this is a film that really doesn't offer anything to the viewer aside from a bad plot, poor acting and stupid jokes. There's nothing really to enjoy here, except for a bad cast that aren't memorable and are more tiresome than funny. This is among Disney's worst live action features, and it doesn't deliver anything worthwhile to the viewer. As a whole, this film fails as a family film, and you'd it be a fun, entertaining film. Unfortunately, this film really doesn't have any redeeming factors about it and it just fails to be memorable, or absolutely entertaining. Live Disney films tended to be hit and miss, and That Darn Cat missed the mark big time. This is a remake of a classic film, and like most remakes, it fails to be as fun as the original. The film's cast is horrible in their performances and the film's plot misfires big time and it really doesn't have anything to be entertaining for the viewer. This film fails and as all remakes before and after it, is forgettable. The direction is pretty poor as well, and is unfocused and only contributes to the downfall of this 1995 of the Disney classic. I remember as a kid I hated this film because I felt it was a stupid film that had pretty bad on-screen gags and bad story development. That Darn Cat remake is a film that should be avoided if you're looking for a well constructed family film that will appeal to the entire family. This remake could have been so much better, but due to a poor script, poor cast, and poor directing, it fails before the film's end. Avoid this if you're looking for a memorable family film with plenty of laughs, as this one won't offer anything for the viewer.

With the 'charm' by a young Christina Ricci and the star of Cool Runnings, one of Disney's best pictures, Doug E. Doug, That Darn Cat become an awful and a shame to Disney studios.

This remake of the Disney classic has a bad cast, stupid jokes, and it just doesn't have the spirit of the original. It's very disappointing.

It was okay... nothing special, nothing completely terrible. I haven't seen it in a LONG time.
